About Mickey

Adoption Fee: $200 Fostered in Texas Age: 9 years Weight: 6.5 lbs. 3/29/19 - Mickey sure has had a bit of a rough time. He was having symptoms of pain on his right side and xrays revealed some that he has some compressed discs in his spine. Because of his reflux he is not a candidate for anti inflammatory meds, so he is on Gabopentin which does seem to help. He was seen by a board certified dentist today because he is a higher anesthesia risk due to his reflux, regurgitation and also collapsed trachea.. He still has the fractured tooth and also needs a dental although his teeth are not dreadful for his age. We don't know if he had dentals in the past or if he just is one of the rare yorkies with good teeth. His is scheduled for April 15. Prior to that we will have blood work and chest xray done. On top of it all, he is having recurring ear infections. He will be seeing a vet dermatologist for this. He had his ear packed again today....he has been treated back to back four times now...as soon as it clears up he gets another. The thought is that it may be due to allergies. Hopefully the dermatologist can get to the bottom of it all so Mickey won't have this discomfort. 1/13/19 - Mickey is on Cisapride and Omeprazole for his reflux. He was diagnosed with IBD and is on Hill's Ultra ZD prescription food. His personality is still the same as noted in his August 3rd post. His fondest wish is to be the center of someone's universe! 11/19/18 - Mickey is ok and resting in the hospital. His neuter and hernia repair went well; but, the scope showed that he definitely has some issues going on in his GI tract. Biopsies were done of his intestines and stomach...and washes of the esophagus. His treatment will depend on those results. He has been on Pepcid and Reglan already...so that will continue. His diet is being changed to Hill's ID Low Fat . We are all surprised because he really has not shown any symptoms other than the water regurgitation. I hate to be funny about this, but it really is typical for me when I take fosters in. They look great and come up with the darndest things...I have learned a lot more about yorkies than I ever wanted to over the years. 11/10/18 - Mickey is doing well. His test for Myesthenia Gravis was negative. He does continue to regurgitate water. We tried thickening it but he rejected that. His foster mom picks him up whenever she sees him drinking and holds him up so the water can pass. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. He is a sweet little guy who wants to be held 24/7. Looking for a velcro pup? He is the one...once his vetting is complete! He has one more test to be done...a scope of his esophagus. He also needs to be neutered and have the hernia repaired. He will be having these things done at Gulf Coast Vet Specialists in Houston this week. He will be under the expert care of Dr. Chris Jones and Dr. Heidi Hottinger. He also needs a dental but that will have to be at a later date. Anything you can do to help with his vet expenses is appreciated. Prayers too!! We are slightly concerned about anesthesia for this little guy due to the regurgitation issues and aspiration risks.. 9/22/2018 - After extensive testing, we have found that Mickey is unable to hold water down; but is able to hold food down. It is thought to be a sensory issue and we are now trying different things to help him. We will update as we know what works best. What we DO know is that it is not causing any noticable health issues for him. He is not getting dehydreated and his blood work is fine! We are keeping him on canned food which provides water for him. We are waiting for the results of a test for Myesthenia Gravis. He will be neutered this coming week and have his inguinal hernia repaired. Hopefully, in the near future Mickey will be ready for his forever home! 8/20/18 - Mickey has been having some ongoing medical issues that we are sorting out. His neuter and hernia repair have been put on hold while further tests are being done. He has increased water intake and increased urination and also has been regurgitating water 3 or 4 times/day. His blood work looks great. He is going to have an ACTH stim test this Wed, the 22nd, and also a urine culture. X rays will be done to see if there is anything obvious regarding the regurgitation. We will take it from there .. he may end up needing an internal med referral. Donations and prayers appreciated! 8/3/18 - Who’s the leader of the club that’s made for you and me? M-I-C-K-E-Y V-E-L-C-R-O This is my theme song says my foster mom. I just want to be with her all day long and I let her hear it when she leaves the room without me! She is not sure if I have always been this way or if it is because, after all these years, my family left me at a shelter saying they did not have time for me; but, the bottom line is that she has promised me a home where I will be with someone all of the time! This means a home where someone is not going to leave me to work all day and is not going to be bothered by my barking to get what I want. I do carry on when I want to go out, when I am not sure where my foster mom is, when I want to be held, when I want to eat and whenever I want anything! If I am content, then the whole house is content! I love to go out in the car and love to shop! There are many stores I am welcome in….I have been to Hobby Lobby and Home Depot in the past week and made a lot of friends! I am just recovering from a pretty bad bout of kennel cough that I probably contracted at the shelter; so, I have not yet had the surgery that I need. I need to be neutered and also have an inguinal hernia that will be repaired at the same time. I also have one broken tooth so, when I have my dental that tooth will be removed. My teeth look really good … the doctor said I must have hit the genetic jackpot since yorkies usually have bad teeth she said. I had horribly infected ears….they have cleared up nicely. I get along with the other pups in my foster home; but, I don’t spend a lot of time playing with them because I really do prefer the company of my foster mom. Foster mom has been putting a thing on me called a belly band because I do have accidents. So, after all of the things mentioned above are taken care of, I will be ready for my forever home. Don’t forget….I want to be attached to you with Velcro, just like my nickname! Nothing else will work out. I promise I will give you lots of kisses and love. Oh, and I LOVE to snuggle with my foster mom in bed at night! If you think I might fit in nicely with you, please complete the online application for me.

Ariel

Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier

Adoption Fee: $600 Fostered in Texas Age: 1 year Weight: 6.2 lbs. Ariel saw her surgeon yesterday and xrays were done. Her leg is healed... show more

Adoption Fee: $600 Fostered in Texas Age: 1 year Weight: 6.2 lbs. Ariel saw her surgeon yesterday and xrays were done. Her leg is healed and shes free to run and play!! The difference in her is amazing! We will see how she does at PT over the next few weeks before considering whether to do the other knee or not. 12/1/19 - Ariel is doing well and has started physical therapy. We will update as she progresses. 11/5/19 - Ariel's first surgery (on her left leg) was today. Her tibia was twisted and at a 90 degree angle so that was fixed and a groove made for her knee and it was repaired....she may need surgery on her femur at a later date. She had a lot of scar tissue in that leg. Her surgeon was pleased with the outcome and will see her in 2 - 3 weeks. She is resting comfortably and ate well this evening! Thank you to everyone who has donated towards Ariel's continued care...she has come a long way. She still has more to go through, but she is a little trooper and will have a wonderful life because so many people cared! 9/14/19 - Ariel is almost ONE! She is scheduled to be spayed on September 18th and after that recovery we will be looking into her knee surgeries. 8/3/19 - Ariel is going to be spayed at the end of the month. We are hoping to proceed with her first knee surgery in September. 6/28/19 - Ariel's ultrasound went well. No shunt was visible and her liver is a good size. Coupled with the fact she is thriving, the thought is that she most likely has MVD. We will repeat bile acid testing in a few weeks and then decide how to proceed.. 6/19/19 - Just a quick update. Ariel has elevated bile acids so her surgery on Friday, June 21st, has been cancelled. She will be seeing the Internal Med specialist at Gulf Coast Vet Specialists to rule out a liver shunt. It would be too risky to do surgery on her leg until this is ruled out. 6/4/19 - ARIEL HAS MET HER MONETARY GOAL FOR SURGERY!! There is also enough to cover physical therapy following surgery. She sends yorkie kisses to all of her supporters!! Ariel had her CT scan and is scheduled for surgery on her left leg on June 21, 2019. The other leg will be done after she has recovered from the first. We are so thankful for our wonderful supporters who have made this possible for this precious pup! 3/6/19 - Ariel is continuing to do well in Physical Therapy ... she saw the dentist today and the right lower canine is still an issue. She will probably need to have her lower deciduous teeth extracted in the next month or two because that canine tooth is coming close to poking her palate. . She has another appt with the dentist on the 26th for a re-eval. 2/10/19 - UPDATE regarding adoption. For an update on her treatments, read the post from yesterday...2/9 ...........The vet has told us that it will be months before Ariel will be of an adequate age and weight to spay and she will not be available to be adopted until after her spay and her physical therapy and any medical issues are addressed. However, we did want to post about the personality she is showing in hopes of finding her forever home in the future. Ariel has NO CLUE that she has a handicap. This thrills us to know that she has such a confident personality, but... sometimes that confident personality can be a downfall in pups this young. She exhibits a very strong will and can throw a tantrum. Yes, it is ADORABLE/ but, take away the fact that she is only a couple pounds and cute, and you have the makings of a major alpha on your hands. We do want a home where Ariel can be spoiled and treated like a princess, but this forever home will need King and a Queen that puts Ariel in line and lets her know who is boss. Delicate alpha owners will know how to handle this piranha in the making; but, it will also be necessary that there be at least two other dogs in the family to teach Ariel boundaries and keep her in line. Her being taken away from her mother so young has left her with only her foster siblings to learn from and these teachings will need to continue as she grows and ages. Are you and your other dogs up for the challenge? We are accepting applications now, but do understand that it will possibly 4 months or a bit longer before she is ready to be adopted. Thanks! 2/9/19 - Ariel continues to do well at Physical Therapy. If you click on the video link under her photo, you can see her progress! She is now up to date on her puppy shots. She has an overbite and a malocclusion, so a consult with a veterinary dentist is upcoming. She does not have any adult teeth yet, so we are hopeful that perhaps we can prevent her lower canines from coming in at the angle of her baby teeth, and causing issues with her palate. Ariel is showing a very strong personality....she is known to scream at the top of her lungs to get her way. :) We think that this personality is why she is doing so well in PT ..she is a fighter! 1/28/19 - Ariel is continuing to do very well in physical therapy where she goes 2x/week. Thank you to all who have sent prayers and donations for her!! 1/16/19 - Ariel saw the physical therapist today at Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists. They were very pleased with her progress! She is able to lift her self up with her hind limbs now and is using them better than when she first came to us. She did some time on the underwater treadmill and had other PT .. exercises and stretching. We have uploaded a video of her on the treadmill. Click on the link for videos under her photo on our website. 1/10/19 - Ariel saw the vet today and she has gained weight and is now 2 lbs! She is now 15 weeks old. She received her first puppy vaccine today. Physical therapy begins next week. We are hopeful that we can get this sweet puppy to use her hind limbs. She can get around but is using her front legs to do so. She is developing a spunky little personality and has made friends with one of her foster mom's pups who is acting like a surrogate mom to her! We are happy about this as she was taken from her mom much too early. 1/8/19 - Ariel will be seeing the vet this week and hopefully will be getting her first vaccination. She has an appointment next week to be re-assessed for physical therapy. She is eating well now and a happy puppy! We will post more when we know more about her therapy. 1/1/19 - Ariel is now 1.5 lbs. She is still on medications for some GI issues she had. She will begin physical therapy in a couple of weeks. We want to get her vaccinated first...that has been put off due to her size and condition. 12/21/18 - Ariel is feeling so much better. She is now weaned and has gained 3 oz! We are hoping to get her exercise program started in the near future. 12/8/18 - Ariel was seen by the physical therapist this past week and a home program has been started. She will return in 2-3 weeks to be measured and see if there is any progress. We are taking it slowly with her....she continues to have other issues related to eating. She will eat one day and reject food the next and needs to be syringe fed on those days. She is staying right at 1 lb so medical testing is limited right now. She is stable and her blood work actually looks good so we are letting Miss Ariel set her own pace, so to speak. Thank you to so many of you for your kind words, your prayers and your donations. She does have a long way to go and we are so appreciative of the love you all show our babies who need us so much. 12/3/18 - Ariel was discharged from ICU on 12/1 and has been doing well in her foster home. She has an appt with Physical Therapy for this coming Thurs. and will begin a home treatment program. Once she is stronger and able to be vaccinated, she will be going to in house physical therapy. 11/30/18 - Ariel is staying another night in the hospital. She is taking syringe feedings well, but still not interested in eating on her own. She is still in the incubator. She is going to be taken out of it for the day and tonight to be sure she can maintain her body temperature. She will then hopefully be discharged tomorrow to her foster home and be weaned. We are fairly certain that she was never weaned prior to her coming to us even though we were told she was eating. We also had a paper that said she weighed 1.3 lbs on the day we picked her up. When we took her to GCVS the next morning she was 15 oz. She now only weighs 1.034. So, she has gained a bit of weight. She does not have swimmers. She was evaluated by the orthopedic surgeon and she has some deformities in her femurs and severe muscle contractures. She cannot start physical therapy until she is able to eat by herself and be a "normal" puppy. The first thing that needs to be done is to work on the muscle contractures. Her vet expenses will certainly be rising.... she is going to need intensive PT and she "may" need surgery in the future. There is a possibility that she won't.... we will just have to take this one step at a time. Thank you to all who are praying for this precious girl and donating towards her care. You all are the reason we are able to help these pups. 11/28/18 - We believe Ariel has Swimmer's Syndrome and this is why she was referred to us. When she is feeling better, we will post a video of her. She is affected in her hind limb. She had an appointment with our orthopedic specialist and physical therapy for tomorrow; but she has not eaten since she came to us and was lethargic. After two ER visits between last night and this morning, she ended up being admitted to ICU at Gulf Coast Vet Specialists in Houston. She does not appear to be ill based upon her blood work so far; but, she needs intensive and frequent feedings and IV fluids. They are hoping to avert having to put a feeding tube in. We will update later when we know more about her . show less

Adoption Fee: $300 Fostered in Texas Age: 6 years Weight: 4.13 lbs. 3/23/2020 - Baxter is doing fantastic! We have found that he can be very pushy with other males. He would probably do best with another female pup or two. He loves to play and loves to run in the yard and chase squirrels and lizards! He is a stinker about marking in the house so he will need to wear belly bands. Perhaps in time it might be better, but we never guarantee that. He is a sweet little cuddly boy who loves to sleep snuggled up with his foster mom. He knows how to sit, down and roll over! Cute as a bug. :) 11/5/19 - Baxter's exam and x ray went well. His leg is healed and we can schedule him for his dental and neuter! We are SO excited for Baxter and SO happy we were able to save his leg. Thank you to all who donated towards his surgery and care! 10/24/19 - Baxter is recovering well from his surgery. He will have xrays in a few more weeks to make sure the healing is complete. Then, a dental and neuter and he will be ready for his furever home! He is a happy go lucky boy who would love to have at least one other fur sibling who hopefully would love to play! 9/14/19 - Baxter's surgery is scheduled for September 18th. Prayers appreciated. 9/5/19 - Hello Everyone. My name is Baxter, and I am a new resident at Yorkie Haven Rescue. In my previous home, there was an unfortunate incident in May and my back left leg was broken. My family was unable to get the surgery that I desperately needed. A vet put a splint on it, but it never healed. A family friend found Yorkie Haven Rescue and they agreed to help me. They say a wonderful lady who loves yorkies paid for my long trip to Houston; and, a very nice man who also loves yorkies flew with me. He was a lot of fun and very kind to me on my long journey even taking me to Starbucks for a Puppacino. It was yummy! They say my leg is pretty messed up and that I will need bone grafting and a plate in my leg. I am hoping that the doctor can repair my leg, so I would love it if anyone reading this would say some prayers that it is still able to be fixed. After I have surgery and all the other vetting that I need, I hear that YHR is going to be looking for a home for me where I will be very spoiled. I am a lap baby and would love a home that either mom or dad are home a lot and want to spend time watching tv with me, talking short walks, playing outside, playing inside and napping with me. I also like going for car rides I'm a little timid with loud noises. But I'm such a tiny little tyke big noises or too much chaos scares me. A home that is relaxed and laid back with a human or humans who love to cuddle would be right up my alley. I've been around small children, but a home without them would be better for me since I'm so small and get underfoot. I hear that we are currently accepting applications for my new parent(s), but it will be a little while before I can join them. I have to be neutered, get a dental, and the main thing, fix my leg. Don't forget, say some prayers for me. I'll say some for you too. Kisses, Baxter! show less

Adoption Fee: $200 Fostered in Texas Age: 9 years Weight: 18 lbs. 6/7/19 - Hi, my name is Cash and I'm from Texas. Yep, a Texas sized Yorkie with a Texas sized bark. Still a lover though. You kind of have to hear my bark to believe it is coming out of this little body. I think someone mixed a little raspy doberman in my vocal cords. So, don't expect any cute Tinkerbell tunes to be coming out of this body. Speaking of my body, since I'm getting a little up in age, I was having some trouble at night when I was sleeping with wetting myself. It was so embarrassing and all the other dogs would just get up and move away from me. I talked to foster mom about it and she and the vet started me on something called Proin and now I wake as dry as the Sahara Desert. Whew! No more getting made fun of. 2/10/19 - Hi, my name is Cash and I'm from Texas. Yep, a Texas sized Yorkie with a Texas sized bark. Still a lover though. You kind of have to hear my bark to believe it is coming out of this little body. I think someone mixed a little raspy doberman in my vocal cords. So, don't expect any cute Tinkerbell tunes to be coming out of this body. Speaking of my body, since I'm getting a little up in age, I was having some trouble at night when I was sleeping with wetting myself. It was so embarrassing and all the other dogs would just get up and move away from me. I talked to foster mom about it and she and the vet started me on something called Proin and now I wake as dry as the Sahara Desert. Whew! No more getting made fun of. Oh, one other thing the vet and foster mom talked about was that I seemed to be blinking alot and the vet said that I have dry eye. Guess that Proin REALLY WORKS! lol No, it doesn't really affect the eyes, but I do have to let foster mom put some drops in my eyes (Cyclosporin drops) daily to help with the dryness. So, if you give me my daily pill, I will stay dry on one end during the night and give me my daily eye drops, I will stay moist on the other end and then I am one happy Yorkie/Raspy Doberman mix. 12/16/18 - Cash is a "diamond in the ruff". When he was originally picked up, he was covered in fleas and his hair was terribly matted. He was shaved down and had pretty rough looking skin. His skin has improved and he is looking to much better. Just wait until his hair grows back in! :) Cash had his surgery to remove the bladder stones on 11.27.18 and has recovered well from that surgery. He is now on a prescription diet to hopefully prevent further stone formation. We are still waiting on the report on the type of bladder stones. He had a bladder infection that was cleared with antibiotics. He is having some issues with occasional nighttime incontinence so we are working to figure out the cause of that. He wears a belly band and does not seem bothered by it at all. Cash is a very pleasant pup who gets along well with his foster siblings. He loves to snuggle in bed at night with his foster mom and other pups. 11/26/2018 - Cash was given away online to a lady who ended up taking him to a vet only to find out that she could not afford him due to all of his presenting medical needs. She reached out to us since he needed immediate surgery. He also has flea dermatitis and dry eye. She told us he was covered with fleas when she got him. She treated him for the fleas and did get some meds for him and also medicated shampoo for his horribly irritated skin. He is presently at our vet being prepped for surgery. As we know more about Cash we will update his bio. show less

Adoption Fee: $250 Fostered in Texas Age: 9 years Weight: 8 lbs. 8/7/19 - Daisy's biopsy came back with a diagnosis of IBD. Meds and a diet change are the current plans. She is doing well at present! 7/30/19 - Daisy had an endoscopy this morning. We will have biopsy reports in 5-7 days. Her stomach looked fine but there was inflammation in the small intestine. 7/25/19 - Daisy has been seen by her internist and an endoscopy has been scheduled. 7/12/19 - Daisy was discharged from the hospital today and will be following up with the specialist in 10 - 14 days. Her blood work was much better, she is now well hydrated and the bloody stools have ceased. She is eating well which is a good sign! She is on multiple meds for her gastrointestinal issues. Thank you to everyone for your donations and kind messages and prayers for Daisy. Thankfully nothing awful was seen on her xrays and ultrasound...she will probably need further testing in the future but for now they want her to recover from this latest issue. \r\n\r\nJuly 10, 2019 - Daisy was admitted today to ICU at Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists with a diagnosis of HGE (hemorrhagic gastroenteritis) and secondary pancreatitis. Daisy has multiple medical issues that have made adoption difficult. We do not have a "furever ours" program because we believe there is always a home for each pup. Sometimes it takes longer to find the right home and sometimes it doesn't come; but, our foster homes know that and take in pups fully aware of this. Our foster homes are thoroughly screened just like our adopers so our foster pups are in great hands always! Daisy has a history of gastro issues and is on a very low fat diet, she is on meds for allergies, and she has PLN (protein losing nephropathy). She now has a grade 2 heart murmur which was just picked up today. She was seen one month ago and did not have that. The plan for Daisy is: Xrays, blood work, echocardiogram and cardiology consult, ultrasound of abdomen, blood work being done. 6/4/18 - Daisy would really love to be the only furbaby in the home. She doesn’t have much to do with the other pups in her foster home, but can sometimes be snippy with them depending on her mood and their personality. This alone would make her best as an only pup. She eats well, but must remain on a Hills ID low fat diet. She would probably love to sleep in the bed with her humans when an only pup; but, for now seems to choose the bed at times and other times a dog bed on the floor or even a crate. We think this is to get away from the other dogs. She has been around children and is fine around them, but not too young to where they don’t understand how to respect her space. She is great with all people, but sometimes can take a little while to warm up. She absolutely loves to play fetch. If your throwing arm is ready, she can fetch all day long. Daisy is good about doing her business outside or on a pee pad, but because of the positioning of her leg, when tinkling on the pad, she seems to over estimate and there is tinkle around the edges of the pad. You’ve got to give an A for effort though. Daisy does fine on a leash but would prefer to have her own back yard of privacy over being walked to have to go. She is the best in the department of clingy/independent. At times she will literally want to lay on top of you and other times wants to be by herself. Again, we think she would really come around to being a clingy baby if she is the only one. She wouldn’t be good as an apartment pup since she will bark at noises or if she thinks she needs to alert you to something or protect you. Lol When picking Daisy up, she will scoot from you. This is where her timid side comes in, so someone will have to realize that even though you would be getting a gorgeous little girl that is a sweetheart, you might have to not push yourself on her and just give her the space and patience to come around to you. She’s been through a lot and sometimes these things stick with these babies awhile. Always a soft voice and gentle demeanor and calm house makes the most timid babies come out of their shell. She can utilize a bench or steps to get on the sofa or bed or you can just do it the old fashioned way and put her up and down. She is doll baby for grooming which is really great since her hair is so beautiful. Now to give you the medical update on Daisy: She has allergies at times and she is on Cytopoint injections for that which has really helped. At present they are lasting about 2 months, but that could change to being needed monthly. It is really important to keep her on the Hill ID Low fat. She had some bloody stool episodes and the diet has seemed to do the trick. Daisy also is in Stage 1 of Renal Disease. She is doing fine and could live a long life, but please realize that by adopting Daisy, you will not be getting a young, bouncy, totally healthy puppy. You will truly be rescuing a dog in need that actually isn’t on her last legs. She might have medical issues, but she is a great pup that eats great, sleeps great, is awesome for grooming, will let you shower her with attention, but won’t demand to be the most important part of your day all day long. One who really needs a human(s) take care of her and let her make you laugh. Her allergy injections and diet do make her a little more expensive than the next yorkie up for adoption, but who doesn’t have a few things going on. Daisy will give you daily love and attention if you are in need of someone to share your life. 1/24/17 - Daisy just got back from an appointment with the orthopaedic surgeon to see how all was going with her leg. He said that she is “healed and ready to go”. So...... she trotted right home and packed her bags. Wow, talk about wanting a new family. Lol As you have likely read, Daisy’s leg was such in the beginning that we did not even think it could be fixed. But, much to our amazement, she does not have that pretzel of a leg any longer. The surgical procedure that had to be done to untwist it, has resulted in that leg being shorter than her other back leg. She has the stealth look of a GSD with the low back. The best part is that she can use the leg now and can scratch the itches she couldn’t scratch before. When running, she chooses to lift it. We assume this is habit from so many years of not being able to use it. But, if just walking, she uses all four. Daisy LOVES to play fetch and will do so all day. Her motto, “If you have the time, I have the stamina.” And latex squeaky balls are her “fetch of choice”. She can be quite the diva with other pups, so being an only pup in the house would be ideal so as not to have any spats. She will use pee pads, and almost always gets ½ on the pad, lol. She also goes outside each time she is brought. She likes to sleep in bed with her people, rides well in a car, is a hearty eater and, as you can see by her photos, will be the prettiest daughter anyone could ever have. So, with all this being said, Daisy is fixing to get her teeth cleaned and then she will truly be “ready to go”. Please look at this pretty face, look past her flaws and give this baby a chance at a life that she obviously did not have to start off. She prays for a family every night. Who will make her prayers come true? 12/16/16 - While Daisy is a love of a pup, she does have issues with other pups. We are looking for her to be the queen of her castle. :) 4/10/16 - While out in the bluebonnets taking photos a rainbow appeared! Daisy and her foster mom made a wish for Daisy's perfect furever home to appear! She has had some issues with her leg and is in a splint; but it is a minor setback. The implants had to be removed from her leg and one small area needed further attention and healing. She will be seeing the surgeon at the end of the month and we are hoping she will be completely healed at that time. Don't let that stop you from completing her application as it does take some time to process applications! :) 10/22/2015 - Daisy's leg has healed well and she started Physical Therapy yesterday to learn how to use it. She will be going to PT twice/week for 6 - 8 weeks and is getting stretching exercises at home. She is already trying to use the leg in certain conditions, so this is all very exciting! Prior to her surgery, that leg was completely unusable! She can actually scratch herself now! :) 9/14/15 - Daisy's leg wrap and her sutures were removed today. Dr. Beale is very happy with her progress. She looks great and will go back the first week of October...more than likely she will be starting physical therapy at that time. 9/4/2015 - Daisy had a very extensive surgery. Dr. Beale had to cut the tibia and femur and put plates in. Her knee cap was on the back side of her knee. There was a lot of scar tissue and overall a very long and tedious surgery but he feels confident that she will do just fine! She may need some physical therapy in the future but for now, it is rest and recuperation for her. She will be on crate rest for 6 - 8 weeks, with leash walking only for potty time. Many thanks to all for the prayers and good thoughts for Daisy! 9/2/2015 - Daisy was surrendered by her owner to a local shelter who contacted us to take her in. They were concerned because of her inability to use her left hind leg. We are posting photos and a video of Daisy's leg to show what this baby has had to endure for most of her life. She also has had repeated ear issues...they will be taking a better look at them when she is under anesthesia. Daisy was taken to see Dr. Beale at Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists in Houston and will be having surgery on her leg on Friday. He said that this leg is like this because she had knee issues as a puppy before her growth plates closed; so her knee is very twisted and the bones are out of alignment. This will be an extensive surgery as there will be a lot of scar tissue in there; but she will be able to use her leg after this surgical correction! We were very excited to hear that this could be done! Of course, this type of surgery does not come without a price....her estimated surgery bill is $4,300. Anything you can do to help us save Daisy's leg will be so appreciated! show less

Adoption Fee: $200 Fostered in Texas Age: 10 years Weight: 4.8 lbs. 3/30/20 - We have found that Harley has recurrent skin issues/allergies. Cytopoint has helped the itch, but his hair gets super oily only a few days after a bath. We are trying different shampoos to see what may work. 1/27/20 - Well, this is one we in rescue have heard so many times. Girl gets yorkie and he is her baby, girl gets married years later and has human baby, and the four legged baby must go. :( Unfortunately for Harley, the date they chose to let him go was Thanksgiving. We have promised Harley that his next Thanksgiving will be full of love, belly rubs, kisses and treats with a family that will never give him up. Harley is a sweet boy and sleeps on a pillow next to his foster mom's head. He gets along well with the easy going pups in the house, cuddling with a couple of them from time to time. He tends to be a bit nervous around a lot of activity, so we are looking for a quiet household. He is very good about going outside to go to the bathroom and comes right back inside. He goes to the door and looks at his foster mom to let him out. Keep in mind that sometimes they do have accidents and things can vary from home to home so don't expect perfection in the housebreaking department! Harley does have some skin issues due to allergies. This was reported to us when he was surrendered. He recently had some issues and responded well to Cytopoint. His teeth were a mess when he came to us and a dental was done where he ended up losing 22 teeth. He recovered quickly and eats very well! He is on canned food with some water mixed in. Harley's blood work looked very good. He does not seem to have any issues other than allergies ... oh, and he does have luxating patellas which is common in yorkies. Best to keep him from jumping up and down on things. Harley walks up steps to his foster mom's furniture! This is a charming little guy with a whole lot of love to share with someone. <3 1/3/20 - BIO COMING SOON! show less

Adoption Fee: $400 Fostered in Texas Age: 3 years Weight: 11 lbs. 8/7/17 - Due to Jax's issues with settling things with his teeth, we will only adopt him out to a home in the Houston area that is willing to do a "slow" adoption, allowing Jax and his potential family to get to know each other. 12/16/16 - While Jax is showing improvement, he is still having some issues adapting to life in a loving home. He is coming along, but really needs patient loving people around him. Currently, when Jax gets overwhelmed he tends to want to "get up close and personal" with his mouth towards whatever is annoying him (or anything/anyone in his way.) We are working on this, but it will take some time to convince him to be a lover/not a fighter. 1/15/15 - Time for a Jax update! Jax has had a bit of a trying time adjusting to life in a loving home. As you can see from his original photos he was either neglected or left to live alone outside for a very long time. He is a bit of a challenge at times, but is a very sweet boy. He as come a long way and is getting a bit better about being handled; but he still needs more rehab time. He can be bathed cautiously and his hair trimmed a bit; but his foster mom is taking it in baby steps. In the end he will be a super loving wonderful pet! Just going to take a bit more time. 5/22/14 - Jax is doing well. He goes on short leash walks throughout the day. He is walking better and better! He is on crate rest and will be for about 6 more weeks. His eyes looked much improved. He has an appointment next week to have his sutures removed. 5/11/14 - Jax had surgery to repair his pelvis on May 7. He was discharged from the hospital on May 9. He was shaved down and was seen by the eye doctor. He is being treated for a bacterial skin infection and infection of his eyelids. He also is being medicated for pain and is on crate rest. He is coming along well but his recovery will be slow. 5/6/14 - Jax was admitted to GCVS. Will update as we know more. 5/6/14 - We received an emergency call about a yorkie that was found on the side of the road late yesterday. He spent the night at the Emergency Clinic where he was found to have a severly fractured pelvis. He is very dirty and matted...his eyes were full of green discharged...the EC cleaned his face up as best they could. He is of course on pain medications. He is on his way this morning to see Dr. Beale at Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists in Houston. Anything you can do to help financially will be appreciated. This surgery is definitely going to be in the thousands. Jax is a young man and deserves a chance at a good life! Please, please pray that they can help him! show less

Adoption Fee: $200 Fostered in Texas Age: 9 years Weight: 6.5 lbs. 3/29/19 - Mickey sure has had a bit of a rough time. He was having symptoms of pain on his right side and xrays revealed some that he has some compressed discs in his spine. Because of his reflux he is not a candidate for anti inflammatory meds, so he is on Gabopentin which does seem to help. He was seen by a board certified dentist today because he is a higher anesthesia risk due to his reflux, regurgitation and also collapsed trachea.. He still has the fractured tooth and also needs a dental although his teeth are not dreadful for his age. We don't know if he had dentals in the past or if he just is one of the rare yorkies with good teeth. His is scheduled for April 15. Prior to that we will have blood work and chest xray done. On top of it all, he is having recurring ear infections. He will be seeing a vet dermatologist for this. He had his ear packed again today....he has been treated back to back four times now...as soon as it clears up he gets another. The thought is that it may be due to allergies. Hopefully the dermatologist can get to the bottom of it all so Mickey won't have this discomfort. 1/13/19 - Mickey is on Cisapride and Omeprazole for his reflux. He was diagnosed with IBD and is on Hill's Ultra ZD prescription food. His personality is still the same as noted in his August 3rd post. His fondest wish is to be the center of someone's universe! 11/19/18 - Mickey is ok and resting in the hospital. His neuter and hernia repair went well; but, the scope showed that he definitely has some issues going on in his GI tract. Biopsies were done of his intestines and stomach...and washes of the esophagus. His treatment will depend on those results. He has been on Pepcid and Reglan already...so that will continue. His diet is being changed to Hill's ID Low Fat . We are all surprised because he really has not shown any symptoms other than the water regurgitation. I hate to be funny about this, but it really is typical for me when I take fosters in. They look great and come up with the darndest things...I have learned a lot more about yorkies than I ever wanted to over the years. 11/10/18 - Mickey is doing well. His test for Myesthenia Gravis was negative. He does continue to regurgitate water. We tried thickening it but he rejected that. His foster mom picks him up whenever she sees him drinking and holds him up so the water can pass. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. He is a sweet little guy who wants to be held 24/7. Looking for a velcro pup? He is the one...once his vetting is complete! He has one more test to be done...a scope of his esophagus. He also needs to be neutered and have the hernia repaired. He will be having these things done at Gulf Coast Vet Specialists in Houston this week. He will be under the expert care of Dr. Chris Jones and Dr. Heidi Hottinger. He also needs a dental but that will have to be at a later date. Anything you can do to help with his vet expenses is appreciated. Prayers too!! We are slightly concerned about anesthesia for this little guy due to the regurgitation issues and aspiration risks.. 9/22/2018 - After extensive testing, we have found that Mickey is unable to hold water down; but is able to hold food down. It is thought to be a sensory issue and we are now trying different things to help him. We will update as we know what works best. What we DO know is that it is not causing any noticable health issues for him. He is not getting dehydreated and his blood work is fine! We are keeping him on canned food which provides water for him. We are waiting for the results of a test for Myesthenia Gravis. He will be neutered this coming week and have his inguinal hernia repaired. Hopefully, in the near future Mickey will be ready for his forever home! 8/20/18 - Mickey has been having some ongoing medical issues that we are sorting out. His neuter and hernia repair have been put on hold while further tests are being done. He has increased water intake and increased urination and also has been regurgitating water 3 or 4 times/day. His blood work looks great. He is going to have an ACTH stim test this Wed, the 22nd, and also a urine culture. X rays will be done to see if there is anything obvious regarding the regurgitation. We will take it from there .. he may end up needing an internal med referral. Donations and prayers appreciated! 8/3/18 - Who’s the leader of the club that’s made for you and me? M-I-C-K-E-Y V-E-L-C-R-O This is my theme song says my foster mom. I just want to be with her all day long and I let her hear it when she leaves the room without me! She is not sure if I have always been this way or if it is because, after all these years, my family left me at a shelter saying they did not have time for me; but, the bottom line is that she has promised me a home where I will be with someone all of the time! This means a home where someone is not going to leave me to work all day and is not going to be bothered by my barking to get what I want. I do carry on when I want to go out, when I am not sure where my foster mom is, when I want to be held, when I want to eat and whenever I want anything! If I am content, then the whole house is content! I love to go out in the car and love to shop! There are many stores I am welcome in….I have been to Hobby Lobby and Home Depot in the past week and made a lot of friends! I am just recovering from a pretty bad bout of kennel cough that I probably contracted at the shelter; so, I have not yet had the surgery that I need. I need to be neutered and also have an inguinal hernia that will be repaired at the same time. I also have one broken tooth so, when I have my dental that tooth will be removed. My teeth look really good … the doctor said I must have hit the genetic jackpot since yorkies usually have bad teeth she said. I had horribly infected ears….they have cleared up nicely. I get along with the other pups in my foster home; but, I don’t spend a lot of time playing with them because I really do prefer the company of my foster mom. Foster mom has been putting a thing on me called a belly band because I do have accidents. So, after all of the things mentioned above are taken care of, I will be ready for my forever home. Don’t forget….I want to be attached to you with Velcro, just like my nickname! Nothing else will work out. I promise I will give you lots of kisses and love. Oh, and I LOVE to snuggle with my foster mom in bed at night! If you think I might fit in nicely with you, please complete the online application for me. show less

Rex

Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier

Adoption Fee: $250 Fostered in Texas Age: 6 years Weight: 7 lbs. 5/19/19 - I am still here waiting for you. I know you are out there....... show more

Adoption Fee: $250 Fostered in Texas Age: 6 years Weight: 7 lbs. 5/19/19 - I am still here waiting for you. I know you are out there....my perfect person! I am a good boy who loves to cuddle with my human. I have gotten used to some of the pups in my foster home and I will play but I need a pup who isn't an alpha....I feel that is my role! :) I need a yard to run and play in and you MUST stay outside with me. I am very busy and love to try to see what is on the other side of the fence. It isn't that I want to run away. I am just a bit nosey! :) Foster mom has to put this thing called a belly band on me. I don't like it but she doesn't want me peeing on things. I just can't seem to get the hang of this "housebreaking" thing.; but who knows, maybe in a home with less pups I would be better. If you love me lots, I promise I will do my best to please you. 12/14/16 - So with everything I’ve let you know about my skills, I will need a very secure yard and very attentive parents (no children) who will be one step ahead of me and before opening the door to the pizza man, pick me up. 0/29/15 - Allow me to introduce myself - my name is Houdini.... I mean Rex. I must have been a magician’s helper in a former life since I’m awesome at disappearing/escaping. This isn’t actually good though since it always got me in trouble before. I ran off from my previous owners a lot and wound up getting hit by a car one day. I was picked up and taken to animal control and when my owners realized that surgery was needed, opted to surrender me to YHR so I could be fixed. I’m all healed now and good to go, so my new home that is. Seems old habits die hard and even in my foster home I try to escape when I get the chance. What can I say, I’m just an explorer. Foster mom wasn’t as easy to get past as my former owners. What’s funny is that I am a major velcro dog with my people, so why do I want to leave? Excitement! I love cuddling with my people and definitely have to sleep in bed close to them. I honestly would much rather live with humans than other pups. Foster mom says she will find me a home where I can be a prince...I told her I might accept a sister, but brothers are out! 6/6/15 - Rex is now all fixed up and ready to move on to his perfect furever life! He was seen by the surgeon this week and given a clean bill of health. He is a happy little, lovable pup who loves to snuggle with a human. He also does like to play with other pups, but can be a tad bit bossy at times...just needs to be reminded to play nicely :) He does not like to share his human, so it is best he not be with a pup who is super attached to his human. 4/13/15 - Rex has been in his foster home for a couple of weeks now and being kept calm so that he can heal from his surgery to repair his diaphragm and let his pelvic fracture try to heal as well. He went in on 3/30 to get his staples out, and goes back to GCVS on 5/20 for x-rays to see how he is healing. One good bit of news for this baby is that he was tested for heartworms and was negative. Rex seems interested in other dogs, so we think that once he has healed, he will be interested in playing with them. He also seems interested in toys. We will all be so glad once he is totally healed and can play. His appetite is great and he sleeps very well. Rex seems to love everyone he meets and is a well rounded baby. He loves exploring when outside. We think it is the first time he has truly had a secure fenced yard to explore in without worrying about cars racing by and the activity of life of a dog able to roam freely in the streets. He loves attention and loves to be held and petted on. Kisses are another of his favorites. He also follows his human around and doesn’t want them out of his sight. So, we think he’ll be a velcro dog unless this changes with time. We will update Rex’s bio after his next appointment and as we learn more about this sweet baby boy. 3/18/15 - Rex had surgery to repair his diaphragm. His organs from his tummy had to be pushed back down and then the diaphragm was repaired. It is a pretty large incision .. chest surgery. He is not currently using his right rear leg due to his pelvic fracture. That should be fine as his pelvis heals. He is now in his foster home finally getting love and attention. He still needs to be on strict rest for 8 weeks to heal properly, so we may not totally know his personality and what type home he needs to be in for a while. We will keep everyone updated on his progress and thank you all so much for donating and saving this babies life. We have no choice but to do this surgery ASAP .. we cannot wait for donations to schedule surgery .. so anything you can do to help is totally appreciated. We were contacted today about Rex who was deemed by the shelter vet to be an emergency. He was hit by a car and has multiple pelvic fractures and a diaphragmatic hernia. Both of these must be surgically repaired. He does have some increased respirations due to the diaphragm, but is not in distress at present. We transported him to Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists​ in Houston and he was admitted and evaluated. He will be watched closely overnight. Surgery for both conditions is planned for tomorrow unless his breathing is worse and then they will have to do it as an emergency tonight. Poor Rex is terribly matted and has sticker burrs all over him. They will shave him down tomorrow after he is anesthetized. You also can donate directly towards his care at GCVS by calling 713-693-1122 HANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR ANY ASSISTANCE YOU CAN GIVE! R show less

Adoption Fee: $100 Fostered in Texas Age: 11 years Weight: 4 lbs. 8/7/19 - Timmy is a tough little one! He doesn't let anything get him down. He loves so much to be held and loves to cuddle. He is on thyroid meds and Melatonin. He gets around really well since having the fusion of his shoulder. 6/20/18 - Timmy had his shoulder surgery two weeks ago and is doing very well! He was seen by the surgeon and also the physical therapist yesterday and he is doing even better than expected at this point! He is definitely a little trooper! He sends lots of kisses to everyone who donated to make his surgery possible! 4/2/18 - Timmy has a stubborn skin infection. Once we get that cleared up, he will be scheduled for surgery. 3/1/18 - Little Timmy can't seem to catch a break. He started having difficulty walking with his front feet crossing and his right shoulder popping in and out; and he was falling down frequently. He was seen by our orthopedic surgeon today in Houston and he said that Timmy needs surgery on his right shoulder. He is scheduled for an arthrodesis (fusion) of his right shoulder on March 16. His other shoulder is a bit loose, but he is hopeful that with the one being repaired there will be less of a demand on it and he may hopefully not need surgery on that other shoulder. 11/16/17 - Timmy went to the vet for an exam and an xray was done and he was found to have gall stones. Photo of the xray is in his pictures. He was referred to the specialist and he went today. An ultrasound showed that he has stones in his gall bladder, liver and bile ducts. We will be doing blood work every couple of months to keep a close eye on him. He is healthy now,and blood work looks great. He may never have issues with the stones; but must be watched closely for signs of obstruction. We don't know how long he has had them...and they may never be a problem for him. He had gone to the vet for something totally unrelated. 12/16/16 - Timmy has been on various diets to prevent bladder stones. With the surgery he had recently it is hopeful he will never have to have surgery again. He must be seen by a vet every three months to have his urine checked and be evaluated for stones. 12/24/13 - In spite of being on a special diet, Timmy has developed another large bladder stone. Poor baby was in pain and went to the vet this morning. Because it is not considered an emergency, he is home on pain meds and being watched. Unless he becomes obstructed, surgery will not be done until after Christmas. Donations and prayers appreciated! 5/28/13 - Timmy was kept in a cage outside and received little to no food and water and no medical treatment at all. He was brought to animal control by his lovely owners (thank goodness) and Yorkie Haven was called to see if they had room for this 3.5 lb. baby. He had his dental and lost 17 teeth and at that time, they found out he had a large bladder stone but had to wait for surgery because he was so emaciated upon arrival. He has now put on some weight and should be good to go for removal of his bladder stone tomorrow. Timmy is a sweet little guy who loves his people and is doing fine with the other pups in his foster home. He and his foster mom will be looking for a home for Tiny Tim that understands these little ones and someone who is ready to give him all the love, attention and comfort that he did not get in his previous home. He's moving up in the world and is not looking back. If you can help with his vetting costs, it will be so appreciated. show less
